Salling's death certificate confirms Radar’s recent report, revealing that the depressed actor took his own life after he hanged himself from a tree at a seedy isolated area located in the Angeles National Forest.
Pals previously told Radar exclusively the star relapsed in his battle with depression just two weeks before his shocking suicide.
Salling recently pleaded guilty to child porn charges in December 2017 and was expected back in court March 7 for sentencing. But, on January 30, the LAPD received a missing person report on the Glee star. Six hours later — around 8:50 AM — police discovered his body at an isolated spot in the Angeles National Forest.
Just one week after his death, however, Salling’s criminal child pornography charges were officially dismissed by a federal judge.
Legal documents obtained by Radar stated Judge Otis. D. Wright ended the case — which included claims the actor possessed 50,000 images of “sadistic” and “masochistic” child porn — on February 7.
